Three Knights Opinion Part 1 – The Government Agrees

The Government has had to admit what it had originally hoped to keep secret: The first part of The Three Knights Opinion commissioned by The Peoples Challenge is correct.

The Government had originally tried to keep secret its grounds for appeal against the referral by the Edinburgh Court of Session in the Andy Wightman & Others challenge on the revocability of Article 50 to the CJEU.

The submission, see section 38, the Government wanted to keep secret admitted that the question was not relevant because Parliament has not directed the Government to pull the Article 50 notification and no EU 27 state has disputed that article 50 is revocable.

This is essentially admitting that if Parliament was to direct the Government to withdraw the Government could not argue.

The PM has changed her tune recently regarding no-Brexit options and now we know why.

She can no longer argue to the public or politicians that no-Brexit is off the table, her legal eagles are arguing in court that it is on the table.

The scales fall from eyes and we are now treated to the truth, the world according to Theresa May is nothing but political bluster and electoral bullying.

Lots to be done between now and 11th December when Parliament will have a meaningful vote Theresa May’s Brexit Shambles.

The most important thing is to get the facts out there so that our MPs can make an informed decision.

This could be how the vote will go down but complacency is one of the biggest threats to the UK’s system of Parliamentary democracy, do not take anything for granted.

We shall see where part 2 of The Three knights Opinion will go…
